Labor Day Weekend, Nominations for Top Philanthropic Event & Bluesmiths Paddle Imua 2016 Dates

Our goal at Bluesmiths is to build timeless, highly considered gear which works in the summer and the winter, both on and off the water.

Summer’s still here and Winter’s coming fast. There is plenty of water time on the horizon.

We work with our small but dedicated crew to make sure we’re on track - athletes like Graham Ezzy, pictured here Ho’okipa in Maui testing the latest iteration of our Award Winning Spartan Board Shorts.

Labor Day weekend gives us good cause to celebrate: We’re offering 15% off our entire collection.

Yes, that’s right - Our Men’s Journal Gear of the Year Kula Windpro Hoodie, our multi Gear-of-the-year Winning Spartan Shorts, and our pioneering Hydrophobic Ocean Shirts Collection.

Simply apply code LABORDAY2015 at checkout. The offer continues until midnight Wednesday 9th September.



We’ve got more news: The benefit event we’ve been working on in Maui for the last 4 years has been nominated for Top Philanthropic  Effort by the folk at SUP The Magazine.
SAVE THE DATE - The 5th Bluesmiths Paddle Imua Benefit Race is May 7th, 2016. More on this soon. In the meantime, save the date, book the time off and get ready to join 200 or more paddlers from all over the world as we race down Maui’s North Shore for the Benefit of children with special needs.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Mahalo & Aloha,
